The Magic Flute
Mozart's classic like you have never seen before. 

Filled with captivating, interactive projections, this breathtaking production by Barrie Kosky and Suzanne Andrade uses a silent-film aesthetic with 21st-century technology to deliver a Magic Flute unlike any that has been seen at HGO before.  

The classic story centers on the noble Prince Tamino’s quest to rescue Pamina, a beautiful princess. Along the way, he is tested by forces of darkness and must overcome evil to discover truth and the meaning of justice. 

Norman Reinhardt sings the role of Tamino opposite Ying Fang as Pamina. Recent HGO Studio alumnus Thomas Glass is the comedic birdwatcher Papageno and So Young Park is the Queen of the Night. 

Sung in German with projected English translation.
